If your client is running a read-only map, which means that one is up on
the server or on another client that has it read-write, then you will see
status chnages but not new additions to the map. This is the limitation of
shared maps and has always been the case. No new items and no alterations
will take place on a read-only map until it is refreshed, only color
chnages due to changing status. This included no new interfaces cards and

This is one big reason why many people prefer the web client, since it
continually publishes new copies of the server map all on its own.

stayed in synch. We can't explain why it doesn't happen now. We have
severed the client/server link and joined them up again, but it hasn't
